Thar She Grows!

A while back I told you I was bound and determined to grow something that looks like a garden.
And now I'm here with an update.

I actually ate something tonight that I grew myself! Yippee!


I made a salad from this lettuce, some quinoa, strawberries and homemade balsamic dressing. It was good. 

Here are some outdoor pictures:


Broccoli! (What is eating the leaves?)



Bush Bean Flowers!


Onion--I just love that pink color it has as it's coming out of the ground. 


An overview. Tiny little summer squash, bush beans, and tomato plants. 


Lettuce and carrots. You can't see the beets or cucumbers...yet. 


Marigold blossom. 

Do you have a garden? How's it doing? This weather has been crazy. When was the last time it hailed three days in a row? 

I really love the garden. It's fun to check on it each day and see how things are coming along. I have a lot to learn, but I think the best way is to learn by doing. I can read all the books in the world and they don't mean much until you actually have your hands dirty. I believe that is true for a lot of things--trials, marathons, parenting...preparation is good, but sometimes you just have to jump in.  Here's to jumping in!
